About this deal

Be careful when using the hairdryer too, as you want to avoid overheating the mouse, which can cause damage to your mouse (plastic melting or warping) and also cause injury to yourself, so proceed with caution. I let the strap out a bit to a point where it felt loose, but this wasn’t a negative as the soft cups, which are made of SteelSeries’ Airweave material, have a decent drip. The Arctis 5 is about as comfortable, but it offers some cooler design elements and features like 7.

The SteelSeries' sound profile can be customized with a graphic EQ and presets in their companion software. As the suspension headband has been added with premium woven ski goggle fabric, even holding this sophisticated audio system will make you feel that you’ve got the ultimate gaming headset in your hands. Ocuk Limited trading as Overclockers UK is a credit broker, not a lender, and is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. The JBL, however, block out slightly more ambient noise while their boom microphone does a better job of making your voice sound full-bodied and clear. Along with any other of your SteelSeries Prism-enabled gear, you’ll be able to synchronise multi-colour lighting effects that will make your entire gaming display a true sight to behold.However, you likely won't be on the move too often with your gaming headset, so this shouldn’t be an issue.

It’s a tasteful implementation that won’t stand out as much as the RGB on the JBL Quantum One, for example, but it should still get the job done. Actuation can be adjusted for individual keys making Actuation adjustment even more customizable to fit your needs. While both headphones are similarly comfortable, the 5 are compatible with SteelSeries Engine software, which allows you to customize their sound profile using the graphic EQ and presets. The optical highlight of the Arctis 5 is undoubtedly the Prism RGB LED lighting, which can illuminate an LED strip as well as the SteelSeries logo on the auricles in up to 16. This is important for the accurate placement and localization of objects (voices, instruments, video game effects) in the stereo field.It’s well-built too, and while largely made from plastic, it never felt like that plastic would break easily. The Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro 2017 are better for gaming than the SteelSeries Arctis 5 2019 Edition due to their very comfortable and durable build. If you don’t have a SteelSeries device plugged in, the Engine application inside GG will not be running in the background.

Hey, but what about the “improved bass response” that Steelseries touted in their launch materials for this new version? This allowed me to keep the dial about an arm’s length away, which is perfect for being able to reach it when necessary and make sure it didn’t interfere with any movements or my best gaming mouse when I didn't need it. There aren’t really any overly rigid or weird design choices — everything is well-placed and thought-out. When you're looking to switch out your skates, you’ll need to choose replacements that fit your specific model of mouse due to each mouse having a different layout on its base where the skates are installed. The headset itself is comfortable and there is an adjustable wheel on the left ear cup to quickly adjust volume.

The SteelSeries have a slightly more comfortable fit, a better-balanced sound profile overall, and an even comprehensive companion app in the SteelSeries Engine software, which expands on the options offered in the JBL Quantum Engine software. In the treble range, occupied by sharp sounds like S and Ts and A/C noise, they achieved about 33dB of isolation, which is good. I also used it to chat with friends and family, who confirmed they couldn’t hear the TV show I was playing on my TV in the background.
